Police search dietary supplement factory in Pathum Thani


Pathum Thani – The police have searched a factory manufacturing medicine and dietary supplement products that may contain the same ingredient as the product called Lyn, which is believed to have caused deaths.

Pol Gen Wirachai Songmetta, Deputy Commissioner-General, recently led a team of police with a writ from the Thanyaburi Provincial Court to investigate the dietary supplement manufacturing source, Vital Health Products Company Limited in Pathum Thani.

It was found that the factory actually produced a weight-loss dietary supplement with a fake Halal trademark. The result of a scientific test to determine whether the product has sibutramine, the same kind of substance as that in “Lyn”, which has caused the demise of humans, is being waited for.

Also found were other products without brands and FDA compliance guarantee as well as many other starting materials that are modern medicines being used in dietary supplements. This is considered unlawful and will be subjected to legal proceedings.
